Central Processing Unit (CPU)
P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD
The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA1155 socket designed for the IntelВ® 3rd/2nd
Generation Coreв„ў i7 / Coreв„ў i5 / Coreв„ў i3, Pentiumв„ў and Celeronв„ў processors.
P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD CPU socket LGA1155
Ensure that all power cables are unplugged before installing the CPU.
•
The LGA1156 CPU is incompatible with the LGA1155 socket. DO NOT install a
LGA1156 CPU on the LGA1155 socket.
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, ensure that the PnP cap is on the socket and
the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your retailer immediately if the PnP cap
is missing, or if you see any damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard
components. ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return Merchandise
Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes with the cap on the
LGA1155 socket.
•
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket contacts resulting from
incorrect CPU installation/removal, or misplacement/loss/incorrect removal of the PnP
cap.

Recommended memory configurations
Chapter 1
1-12
Chapter 1: Product introduction
Memory configurations
You may install 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB unbuffered and non‑ECC DDR3 DIMMs into the
DIMM sockets.
•
You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The system maps
the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess
memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.
Due to IntelВ® 2nd generation processors' behavior, DDR3 2200 and above, 2000/1800
MHz memory module will run at DDR3 2133/1866/1600 MHz frequency as default.
•
According to Intel CPU spec, DIMM voltage below 1.65V is recommended to protect
the CPU.
•
We recommend that you install the memory modules using the blue slots for better
overclocking capability.
•
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimal compatibility, we
recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or date code (D/C)
from the same vendor. Check with the retailer to get the correct memory modules.
Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit WindowsВ® OS, when you install 4GB
or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be
about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you do any of the
following:
-
-
Use a maximum of 3GB system memory if you are using a 32-bit WindowsВ® OS.
Install a 64-bit WindowsВ® OS if you want to install 4GB or more on the
motherboard.
•
This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 512 megabits (Mb) chips or
less.
•
Memory modules with memory frequency higher than 2133 MHz and its corresponding
timing or the loaded X.M.P. Profile is not the JEDEC memory standard. The stability
and compatibility of these memory modules depend on the CPU’s capabilities and
other installed devices.
•
The maximum 64GB memory capacity can be supported with 16GB or above DIMMs.
ASUS will update the memory QVL once the DIMMs are available in the market.
•
The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked
or at a higher frequency, refer to section 3.4 Ai Tweaker menu for manual memory
frequency adjustment.
•
For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (2 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.

Onboard switches
Onboard switches and buttons allow you to fine-tune performance when working on a bare or
open-case system. This is ideal for overclockers and gamers who continually change settings
to enhance system performance.
MemOK! button
Installing DIMMs that are not compatible with the motherboard may cause system
boot failure, and the DRAM_LED near the MemOK! switch lights continuously. Press
and hold the MemOK! button until the DRAM_LED starts blinking to begin automatic
memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.
P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD
1.
•
Refer to section 1.2.7 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the DRAM_LED.
•
The DRAM_LED also lights up when the DIMM is not properly installed. Turn off the
system and reinstall the DIMM before using the MemOK! function.
•
The MemOK! switch does not function under Windowsв„ў OS environment.
•
During the tuning process, the system loads and tests failsafe memory settings. It
takes about 30 seconds for the system to test one set of failsafe settings. If the test
fails, the system reboots and test the next set of failsafe settings. The blinking speed
of the DRAM_LED increases, indicating different test processes.
•
Due to memory tuning requirement, the system automatically reboots when each
timing set is tested. If the installed DIMMs still fail to boot after the whole tuning
process, the DRAM_LED lights continuously. Replace the DIMMs with ones
recommended in the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists) in this user manual or on
the ASUS website at www.asus.com.
•
If you turn off the computer and replace DIMMs during the tuning process, the system
continues memory tuning after turning on the computer. To stop memory tuning, turn
off the computer and unplug the power cord for about 5–10 seconds.
•
If your system fails to boot up due to BIOS overclocking, press the MemOK! switch
to boot and load the BIOS default settings. A message will appear during POST
reminding you that the BIOS has been restored to its default settings.
•
We recommend that you download and update to the latest BIOS version from the
ASUS website at www.asus.com after using the MemOK! function.

P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD TPU Boost switch
1.2.7
The TPU LED (O2LED2) near the TPU switch lights up when the TPU switch is
enabled. Refer to section 1.2.7 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the TPU LED.
•
If you enable this switch under a WindowsВ® OS environment, the TPU function will be
activated after the next system bootup.
•
You may use the TurboV and Auto Tuning feature in the TurboV EVO application,
adjust the BIOS setup program, or enable the TPU switch at the same time. However,
the system will use the last setting you have made.
Onboard LEDs
Onboard LED
The motherboard comes with a standby power LED that lights up to indicate that the
system is ON, in sleep mode, or in soft-off mode. This is a reminder that you should
shut down the system and unplug the power cable before removing or plugging in any
motherboard component. The illustration below shows the location of the onboard LED.

•
For a fully configured system, we recommend that you use a power supply unit
(PSU) that complies with ATX 12 V Specification 2.0 (or later version) and provides a
minimum power of 350 W.
•
Do not forget to connect the 4-pin/8-pin EATX12 V power plug. Otherwise, the system
will not boot.
•
We recommend that you use a PSU with a higher power output when configuring a
system with more power-consuming devices. The system may become unstable or
may not boot up if the power is inadequate.
•
If you are uncertain about the minimum power supply requirement for your system,
refer to the Recommended Power Supply Wattage Calculator at http://support.asus.
com/PowerSupplyCalculator/PSCalculator.aspx?SLanguage=en-us for details.

P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD Clear RTC RAM
To erase the RTC RAM
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for
about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter
data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default
position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
•
If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper
again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMOS, reinstall the
battery.
•
You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For
system failure due to overclocking, use the C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall) feature.
Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter
settings to default values.

RAID support
5.1
RAID configurations
The motherboard supports the following SATA RAID solutions:
•
5
IntelВ® Rapid Storage Technology with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10 and RAID 5 support.
5.1.1
•
You must install WindowsВ® XP Service Pack 3 or later versions before using Serial
ATA hard disk drives. The Serial ATA RAID feature is available only if you are using
WindowsВ® XP SP3 or later versions.
•
Due to WindowsВ® XP / Vista limitation, a RAID array with the total capacity over 2TB
cannot be set as a boot disk. A RAID array over 2TB can only be set as a data disk
only.
•
If you want to install a WindowsВ® operating system to a hard disk drive included in a
RAID set, you have to create a RAID driver disk and load the RAID driver during OS
installation. Refer to section 5.2 Creating a RAID driver disk for details.
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write data in
parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a
sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access
and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to
a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications
to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID
configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use
two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be
of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard disk drives. Among
the advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better HDD performance, fault tolerance, and
higher storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration is best suited for transaction processing,
relational database applications, enterprise resource planning, and other business systems.
Use a minimum of three identical hard disk drives for this setup.
P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD
Chapter 5
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data) having
to be calculated and written. With the RAID 10 configuration you get all the benefits of both
RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive
and three new drives for this setup.
5-1
5.1.2
Installing Serial ATA hard disks
The motherboard supports Serial ATA hard disk drives. For optimal performance, install
identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays.
2.
Connect the SATA signal cables.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3
Setting the RAID item in BIOS
You must enable the RAID function in the BIOS Setup before creating RAID sets using SATA
HDDs. To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Advanced menu > SATA Configuration, and then press <Enter>.
3.
Set the SATA Mode item to [RAID Mode].
4.
Save your changes, and then exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 3 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS Setup
Due to chipset limitation, when SATA ports are set to RAID mode, all SATA ports run at
RAID mode together.
